The Vice-Rectory of Research is the administrative office in charge of the Research System (SIUN, for its Spanish initials) of Universidad Nacional de Colombia. Its functions include the policy-making on research and extension in order to articulate the university missions —teaching, research, and extension—, as well as guiding and coordinating the execution of those policies within the University.
It was created through Article 12 of Universidad Nacional de Colombia General Statute (Acuerdo 011 of 2005 [12 March] by University Superior Council) and initially organised through Acuerdo 032 of 2005 (30 August) by the same council.
Professor Francisco José Román Campos is the current Vice-Rector of Research at Universidad Nacional de Colombia.
